The first emphasis of these five ideas is obviously on God; every thought begins with that word. God is always with me. He is my strength, my Source, my light, and the Mind with which I think. As the Bible says, “He is not far from each one of us; for in Him we live and move and exist” (Acts 17:27-28). When I recognize that the environment in which I exist, the very energy that forms my life, is God, peace comes to my mind. How could I ever be separate from the Infinite? The Son of God “cannot separate himself from what is in him” (T-13.XI.10:2), and what he is in.
The second emphasis I notice is on my seeing. “Christ’s vision is His gift….Let me call upon this gift today” (2:5-6). “I can see only what God wants me to see. I cannot see anything else” (3:3-4). “I cannot see in darkness. God is the only light” (4:2-3). Any seeming vision apart from God cannot be real. Vision is His gift, God’s Will determines what can be seen, and God is the light by which we see it. Let me be glad to see what He shows me; let me see as He wills me to see.
Throughout, the lesson emphasizes my unity with God. If I am one with God and all creation, how can I see other than He does? To think I see differently, therefore, is to deny what I am and to wish I were something else apart from God, able to see what He does not. To share His vision and His thoughts is to affirm my true Self, as He created me.
